Nice mod :)
Could I use this in a modpack I am planning on making???
Also I am the first person to download and upvote. This mod seems to fit with my modpack idea perfectly. I have always wanted more wood types for building thank you for making this amazing mod!!!!

do you think I should post snapshots? I will only make up to three snapshots because if I make more I would have to remove the current (stable) version and/or some of the snapshots
